What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Ahead With Tails

We educate at risk or under-served populations and groups in proper animal care and handling, as well as vocational skills. Often these groups have had little exposure to proper animal care skills. We give them those tools as well as provide animals to hold and handle who act as therapy pets.

Our comprehensive and easy to understand curriculum covers not just dog care and handling but rather all animals, and includes guest speakers and potential access to volunteer opportunities.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Economically disadvantaged people
